Offering a look that’s seemingly just as much woodwork art as it is a sneaker, this Air Max 90 features a one-piece mahogany leather upper, covered from toe to heel in swirling laser-etched patterns. Even the key details like the Swoosh, heel badge and eyestays are laser-etched, making for a clever alternate take on the AM 90’s familiar layered look.
The premium stylings continue to the shoe’s collar area with a thicker-than-usual leather tongue, branded with a lasered Nike Sportswear hit. The collar lining and insole are both constructed of burgundy leather as well. Down below, white midsoles with a burgundy Air Max cushioning unit and semi-translucent berry red outsoles complete the style.
Expect the mahogany-colored Nike Air Max 90 Laser to release via Nike SNKRS Korea on August 10, with a US release date likely to follow later in the month. The MSRP is set at $150 USD.
